A SALVAGED FB MARKETPLACE FIND GETS REPURPOSED INTO A BOHO HEADBOARD!
I’m hoping today’s post will spark some ideas and offer inspiration to think outside the box! I’m excited to share my latest find — a repurposed BOHO HEADBOARD! It’s not really a headboard though. I’ve been bouncing around DIY Headboard Ideas so when I saw this carved wood wall art, I knew it was perfect! I can’t wait to hear what you think!
Here’s what I started with. I found this Boho looking wall decor on FB Marketplace. It was originally listed for $100 but reduced to $40.
Here’s what it looks like as my new boho headboard!

For those of you who know me, you know I rarely buy new furniture. My home is filled with salvaged road finds, thrift store pieces, and flea market/garage sale treasures. It’s not that I don’t like new things. For me, it’s all about the thrill of the hunt and what I can create with what I find. I’m also a huge believer a home should come together organically. My style is a little eclectic and I’m not one to follow a trend to a ‘t’ but instead, I like a little of this and a little of that to make things interesting.
Lately, I’ve been incorporating a little more boho into my decor. This includes plants, macrame wall art, throw pillows (ordered from Amazon but haven’t arrived yet), and a lot of textured throws. I’m really happy I found this new-to-me headboard. And NO painting needed. I’m going to keep this carved wood look. If I get bored of it and decide I want to change it up, I can always paint it another color down the line.
STEP #1 Clean
I started by giving this piece a thorough cleaning with a scrub brush and this White Lightning heavy-duty cleaner. It took some time to get into all the nooks and crannies of the wood carving details.
STEP #2 Measure and Center
I measured and centered the wall hanging above the bed. Then marked out the corners with a pencil.
STEP #3 Mark Screw Hole Positions
To make sure I hung it exactly where I wanted it, I subtracted 4 inches from the top pencil mark and 3/4 of an inch from the side pencil mark to match up with the hanger on the back of the headboard.
STEP #4 Drill and Hang
I drilled some 1 3/4 inch screws into the wall (thicker because of my faux brick!) and hung my new Boho Headboard!
I’m loving this new headboard! It adds a boho vibe without being over the top. It ties the wood in the bedroom all together while giving it some natural warmth and interesting detail.
I bought some wall mount lights at the Restore and would love to mount one on each side above these night tables. I decided to keep these nightstands for now. 🙂
Here’s another look at the before and after…
I’ll be back with my Furniture Fixer Upper Crew this Thursday restyling this 90’s Wing Chair. Look familiar? This will be [hopefully…wish me luck!) an exciting part 2 of this makeover!
LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU THINK OF THIS SALVAGED HEADBOARD… OR FEEL FREE TO ASK ANY QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE. I ALWAYS LOVE HEARING FROM YOU. IT MAKES MY DAY! 🙂
Happy furniture painting my friends!
